Event Update For 2019-10-24

The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.

A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

  1. [2nd try]

    G'mornin' Jonny. Sleep-in Saturday greetings to everyone.

    Scranton, PA had a JJFH event two-fer! This day was pick-up pyro day, where the day before was a van-vacate occurrence.
    Every day is car-char and truck-totalled day.

    How about all those JJFH events associated with 77? Very peculiar.

    Thousands of troops deployed by Brazil amid fury at worst oil spill in country’s history

    The mysterious spill has continued and has now touched more than 1,000 miles of Brazil’s coast, polluting some of the country’s most picturesque beaches and destroying local marine life.

    [T]he government is no closer to determining the source of the spill.

    Describing the spill as “the largest environmental disaster in history”, he asked: “How will the northeast survive now, in the high season, when tourism is one of the main activities, with beaches full of oil?”

    Mr Costa added: “We are facing an incompetent government that has done nothing for weeks.” [more; sounds familiar]

  3. I'm not so sure that oil washing ashore in Brazil is a 'spill', as in a human ship or rig leaked it. It may simply be oil that has bubbled up out of the ground or out of the seafloor spontaneously. Analysis supposedly shows it's probably Venezuelan crude. Again, that doesn't mean it's a spill from a Venezuelan ship or oil rig, but may have come from the ground or seafloor in Venezuela. Sort of like the oily version of the methane exploding out of the ground in Siberia. 'Self-extracting crude', I guess you could call that.

    In a recently published article entitled, We Have No Reason to Believe 5G is Safe, Scientific American (SciAm) magazine issued a stern warning about the known and potential dangers of 5G technology.

    Of particular significance is the fact that SciAm is the oldest continuously published monthly magazine in the United States, founded by inventor and publisher Rufus M.

It is a highly influential publication, widely reputed for its rigorous scientific standards, and lauded by today's fact-checkers as highly credible and staunchly pro-science. [more]

    Meth - not Fentanyl - driving overdose deaths in Western US

    Ian Stevenson's case for reincarnation: Are we skeptics really just cynics?

    Stevenson's main claim to fame was his meticulous studies of children's memories of previous lives. Here's one of thousands of cases. In Sri Lanka, a toddler one day overheard her mother mentioning the name of an obscure town ("Kataragama") that the girl had never been to. The girl informed the mother that she drowned there when her "dumb" (mentally challenged) brother pushed her in the river, that she had a bald father named "Herath" who sold flowers in a market near the Buddhist stupa, that she lived in a house that had a glass window in the roof (a skylight), dogs in the backyard that were tied up and fed meat, that the house was next door to a big Hindu temple, outside of which people smashed coconuts on the ground.

    Stevenson was able to confirm that there was, indeed, a flower vendor in Kataragama who ran a stall near the Buddhist stupa whose two-year-old daughter had drowned in the river while the girl played with her mentally challenged brother. The man lived in a house where the neighbors threw meat to dogs tied up in their backyard, and it was adjacent to the main temple where devotees practiced a religious ritual of smashing coconuts on the ground. The little girl did get a few items wrong, however. For instance, the dead girl's dad wasn't bald (but her grandfather and uncle were) and his name wasn't "Herath" — that was the name, rather, of the dead girl's cousin. Otherwise, 27 of the 30 idiosyncratic, verifiable statements she made panned out. The two families never met, nor did they have any friends, coworkers, or other acquaintances in common, so if you take it all at face value, the details couldn't have been acquired in any obvious way.
